I composed “When These Days” when I was 15-16 years old. At the time I was playing in an acoustic folk band, but started to compose with an electric ensemble in mind.
I wanted to have all the possibilities that electric instruments and electronic equipment could give me.
The lyrics (and vocal melody) for the song is composed by Stig Lunblad-Sandbakk.
There are several recordings of the song, both live and studio recordings.
This particular version is based on a live concert recording with my band Woo, from 2001.
Drums: Geir Arne Ose
